Free Interactive Forum on Science & Beer at Pike Brewing on April 23

April 14th, 2014 · No Comments · Events

This one might be for the truly geeky beer geeks, but it certainly sounds interesting to me. The event features researchers connected to the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and is modeled after a similar highly successful program there. The event is free, but please see the contact information below to reserve your space if interested.

Press Release:

What: Members of the Seattle area community will gather for a free interactive forum on science and beer at the Pike Brewing Company presented by the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science, the Jewish Federation, and the Washington Israel Business Council. The event features a conversation with leading nanotechnology researchers connected to the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, a top- ranking multidisciplinary research institution. Speakers include quantum computing pioneer Dr. Roee Ozeri of the Weizmann Institute and Dr. Adrienne Fairhall, a Weizmann graduate who is now studying computational neuroscience as an Associate Professor at the University of Washington. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn about beer production from Charles Finkel, founder and president of the Pike Brewing Company, and sample craft brews.

“Science on Tap” is modeled after a highly successful program that the Weizmann Institute of Science sponsors in the cities of Tel Aviv and Rehovot, Israel. The annual event enables Israelis to attend public lectures led by Weizmann researchers at pubs and coffee shops. This is the first time that “Science on Tap” has been brought to the United States.

When: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 7–9 p.m.
